If you’re like one of the 45 million Americans who diet each year, you know what makes most diets nearly impossible to stick to: hunger. While dieting can help you lose weight in the short term, most people who go on diets eventually regain most or all of the weight they lost in the first place because they fail to implement the small, lasting habits that keep the weight off once the diet is over.

Weekend projects that can boost home value

Ultimately, a home’s true value is determined by the price someone is willing to pay for it. When deciding whether to remodel a home and how to do it, a big part of that decision rests with what the market wants and what the neighborhood will bear.

The 90/20 rule: how to get 110% out of yourself and your day

You’ve likely heard of the 80/20 rule: 20% of the people do 80% of the work. But this is something altogether different. 80 + 20 = 100. 90 + 20 = 110. Like it or not, there are times when life requires 110% of what you have to give. The 90/20 rule is my formula for sustained, focused work over an extended period of time without sacrificing health or sanity.
